Short Link

This plugin is no longer maintained. Please use another one, such as Shorter Links (https://wordpress.org/plugins/shorter-links/).

The Short Link WordPress plugin automatically creates a link element in the section of the post's page with rel="shortlink" attributes. The URL in the href attribute defaults to the id number of the post in question but can be overridden with a human-friendly slug after the post has been saved.

It also creates an HTTP Link header that conveys the same information as a performance optimisation (clients need only do a HTTP HEAD to resolve the URL)

The link element looks like this:

<link rel="shortlink" href="{url}" />

The HTTP header is:

Link: <{url}>; rel=shortlink
